Matthew Green: We can win back Ludlow

The South Shropshire Journal reports that Matthew Green wants to fight Ludlow for the Lib Dems at the next election and believes he can win it back. He gained the seat in 2001 but lost it in the general election earlier this year.

He says:

“One of the reasons I lost the election was that a lot of people voted to get rid of Tony Blair. They didn’t get rid of Tony Blair, because it doesn’t work like that – instead they got rid of their local MP.

“People have said to me they want a full-time MP again, someone that has a strong interest in local matters.”

His optimism should be framed.
